What is bokeh?

Bokeh is a term describing the subjective artistic merit of a part of a picture that was not in focus on a photograph. This is a fairly new term for the Russian language, it came from Japanese in the late 90s of the last century, and in translation means "fuzziness, fuzziness".

In this article we will describe in more detail what bokeh is.

Different lenses and shooting conditions allow you to make bokeh of a different nature, but there are no rules here - bokeh quality is a very subjective indicator.

Bokeh with graphic editor
